DDR3-1333 NOT 1600
This review is from: PNY XLR8 16GB (2 x 8GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model MD16384KD3-1600-X9
Pros: Overclocked to 1600 ok.
Cons: This is DDR3-1333 memory with a XMP profile for 1600. The PNY website advertises this correctly but Newegg and the product packaging flat out lie.
Other Thoughts: Verified the speed with CPU-Z after the BIOS reported the speed as 1333.. Running in a Gigabyte GA-Z87X-UD5H motherboard.
